Mindhunter season two is simply brilliant I have to say it is even better than season one. It’s easily one of the best shows on TV right now. Netflix has yet to renew it for the third season, but when creator David Fincher sold the series to Netflix, he wanted it to do it for five seasons.
During a recent interview with THR, Holt McCallany, who plays FBI agent Bill Tench on Mindhunter, gave some insight on Fincher’s plan for the series, saying:
“He said ‘Listen, are you ready to do this for five seasons? Because even if I fuck it up, it’s gonna go five seasons, and I don’t intend to fuck it up.’ So I’d like to think that we will continue, for as long as David is intrigued by telling this particular story.”
Now, I hope Netflix renews the series for Season 3 already! There is so much more than this series can dive into, so many insane, eerie, and twisted serial killer stories that could include the likes of Ted Bundy, Hillside Strangler, John Wayne Gacy, Green River Killer, and more. The series is currently building up to the BTK.
I am just hoping that Netflix allows Fincher to keep telling these stories! The series is just so well done with superb and smart writing, acting, and cinematography.
The report said that even though Mindhunter hasn’t been renewed yet, production on the show will be “moving to a different production location.” The fact they are planning on moving the production tells us that there are no plans of closing it down and killing it yet!
McCallany also teased that Season 3 might be “a complete reimagining of the show.” Unfortunately, he doesn’t explain what that means. I imagine there could be a significant time hike or something like that. In a previous interview with Collider, the real FBI agent that the series is based on, John Douglas, pitch some other storylines that the show could explore:
“There’s a lot more they could do. A good one would be the Hanson case up in Alaska. Robert Hanson. He’s the one who hunted down women, flew them up into the wilderness in his airplane that he owned, and then he’d strip ’em down naked and hunt them down like wild animals. That’s going to be a big one. And Green River is going to be a big one. The BTK, they’re doing it now. I don’t know if they’ll come to a resolution… There are some other cases, and some cases are not well known, but they’re interesting cases. We were involved, my partner and I, in the John Gacy case. And of course you’ve got Ted Bundy. That was another agent in my unit who I sent down to spend time with Ted Bundy. That has to be one as well.”
